Over the past year, the SNAPP Evidence-Based Conservation Working Group has been constructing a systematic map, documenting available evidence on the impact of conservation interventions on human well-being. The Working Group has been developing a data portal for this information to make it easier for scientists and conservation practitioners to explore the evidence. A beta version of the Evidence-Based Conservation Data Portal is now available online.
The Evidence-Based Conservation portal is designed to allow users to explore, filter, visualize and download relevant data on conservation and human well-being linkages. The data underlying this tool was generated using a systematic mapping approach as outlined in Bottrill et al. 2014, McKinnon et al. 2015, 2016. Specifically, this SNAPP data portal collates information from over 1,000 peer reviewed and grey literature articles measuring some impact of nature-based conservation interventions on different aspects of human well-being in non-OECD countries.
